Can't disable Blogroll (12 posts)

    Hi All,

    I have recently installed WordPress with the Atahualpa 3.4.3 theme. I have done some googling on this topic and tried some suggestions (including from these forums) on this but no luck.

    Even if I add another widget to the Right Sidebar the Blogroll does not deactivate. Furthermore, the Blogroll is not listed/does not appear under the Right Sidebar so I can't turn it off specifically. I have also tried dragging both Active and Inactive widgets to the Right sidebar (this was a solution suggested by a poster here I believe). Also, I have no sidebar.php file (some other posts have suggested editing this file).

    How can I remove the Blogroll? Much appreciated...

    Thanks

    You'll find the aforementioned code in the footer.php ;)

    Lines 66-78 in my case. Gee - how obvious a location.

    Commented out and problem solved - thanks a lot for the prompt response t31os_ !

    I have the same problem :( I checked footer.php but nothing like that isn't there. I replaced original theme footer with WP footer but I don't see anything that would put that Blogroll on side bar. In sidebar.php I only have archives and meta there.

    Thanks for help

    do you have the blogroll widget activated?

    it isn't even there! I may be on to something at the moment though - tried to drag everything to a different place and sidebar is changing.
    But I seem to have 2 meta widgets atm...

    Edit: Done :) Lets just hope it srays that way.

    Try another theme, should only take a few minutes to switch, plonk in a few widgets, check the page, then change it back...

    Thanks for the answer.. but no way:(

    I ve changed the theme, added 3 other widgets to right sidebar and then changed the theme to elegant jewel. Now i can see categories, blogroll (cannot get rid of them) and the other widgets i ve added. And the weird thing is that, I cannot remove the widgets I ve added.

    What is the problem of this theme?:(

    Thanks.

    I had the same problem and removed the code from:

    <div id="linkcat-12" class="widget widget_links"><div class="widget-title"><h3>Blogroll</h3></div>

    to the

    </div>

    after the Blogroll components in the footer.php file. Problem solved.

    Copy and save the original footer.php file in case you mess up.
